Nestlé Middle East was founded in 1997 in Jebel Ali Free Zone, Dubai, and today serves as a regional hub to fulfill the needs of the GCC, the Levant, Iran, and Iraq markets. To date, Nestlé has invested more than USD 400 million in the region, owning and operating 14 factories and 16 offices. These capital investments have contributed heavily to creating job opportunities, enhancing technological and manufacturing capabilities, and fostering national economies around the region.
Nestlé Waters has signed an agreement with the United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) Higher Corporation for Specialized Economic Zones to build a 100 million Emirati Dirhams water factory in Abu Dhabi. The completed factory is expected to provide up to 100 jobs in its first few years of operation, producing Nestlé Pure Life brand for the United Arab Emirates and lower Gulf. The factory will be Nestlé Waters’ 16th in the Middle East and second in the UAE, where an existing plant has been operational at Al-Qouz Industrial Area since 2003, then relocated to Techno Park in the Jebel Ali Free zone in Dubai in 2010.
Nestlé Middle East contacted Soil Solutions Middle East to provide a solution for sand stabilization and dust-prevention outside their factory.
The SSME team conducted a site inspection and determined that with a little preparatory work the area could be treated with EBS Soil Stabilizer, which would provide the solution required by Nestlé. The area was prepared by removing the excess accumulated sand and sweeping the surface, once prepared the surface was treated with the EBS Soil Stabilizer utilizing a pump and spray system then allowed to cure before opening back up to pedestrian traffic.
The treatment with the EBS Soil Stabilizer will eliminate the drifting sand, prevent dust and provide a healthier and safer working environment.
Initial application was completed in May of 2016. See pictures from October 2018 2.5 years later with no maintenance having been done and the EBS Sand Stabilization still performing with the prevention of drifting sand and blowing dust.
